Dental Care

Offensive breath. Stained Teeth. Trouble eating.These are just a few common signs that your pet may have Dental Disease. Proper dental care is as important to your pet as it is to you. The problem is that your pet can’t do anything about it. Your pet is looking to you for the care and treatment that he or she needs.

In order to try to maintain your pets dental health, you should have your pets teeth examined regularly. Most examinations can be done at that same time your pet is in the office for another procedure. If your pet requires a dental procedure, most likely it will require the use of some level of anesthsia.  Before putting your pet under anesthesia, we will perform a full physical examination. We also recommend that a pre-anesthetic blood profile be performed to maximize patient safety and alert the doctor to the presence of dehydration, anemia, infection, diabetes and/or kidney or liver disease which could complicate the procedure. These conditions may not be detected without a pre-anesthetic profile. These tests are similar to those your own physician would run if you were to undergo anesthesia. In addition, the results of these tests may be useful if your pet’s health changes so that we may develop a faster and more accurate diagnosis and treatment.
